Corporate social responsibility

We’re committed to helping those who live with dementia, as well as their families and carers. That’s why we partner with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland.

Dementia is a debilitating disease that affects over 850,000 people in the UK alone. Over 24,000 of our colleagues are Dementia Friends, which means they have a better understanding of how they can help support dementia patients and their carers. We consider it an integral part of our training, and we wear the forget-me-not logo with pride. From helping dementia patients get the right medicine to providing help to a carer, our teams demonstrate their support for the initiative every day.

Since 2015, we’ve raised over half a million pounds to fund dementia research projects. We’ve held bake sales, dressed up, even climbed mountains and cycled across Europe for the cause. We help connect customers to useful services by promoting Alzheimer’s Society resources in our LloydsPharmacy Healthy Living Zones.

Our partnership with Alzheimer’s Society and Alzheimer Scotland reflects our corporate vision of better health for all. It also truly resonates with our ICARE values and we’re proud to give our time and resources to contribute to the search for a cure.

Jeremy Hughes CBE, Alzheimer’s Society CEO says: “As we lead the fight against dementia, it’s exciting to work with a leading healthcare brand with a presence both on the high street and in distribution, helping to raise awareness of Alzheimer’s Society and our sister charity Alzheimer Scotland. Money raised will go towards funding vital care services in the local community today and support ground-breaking research into a cure for tomorrow.”
